Same Hands

In the trenches I hold him

his poor wing still broken

I promise some day he’ll go free.

In the chaos I lost him,

my poor pigeon friend, will no

longer find hands that fend.

And yet, down my sniper, I catch

a brief glance of a soldier on

opposite lines; he’s small and

unnoticed, an enemy target,

with one small grey bird

in his arms.
